We are so much like Noah. We are sinful. But we are also made in the image of God! We are also capable of being blameless in God’s sight! Not by our own power or merit, but by the blood of Christ.
Should we sin more, that grace may abound? Certainly not! I am grateful that God has orchestrated things in such a way that His perfect grace and justice work hand-in-hand so that I might be saved from death, lavished with His love and blessings, and still have the motivation and drive to pursue His will for my life!
None of us are perfect, so we must unfortunately sometimes find ourselves in Cain’s land, but if we are striving to honor God, we are not striving in vain!
Cain set the example for what improper worship results in, but our God is deserving of our best efforts!
